This study devotes to making a holistic study dealing with the development, planning, operations & management, and investment of electric vehicles (EVs) and EV charging infrastructure in Singapore. Firstly, we recap the current e-mobility system of Singapore, including vehicle population, vehicle ownership & composition, market shares of prevailing EV brands. In addition to comparing the EV markets of Singapore and Norway, we illustrate the current state of EV charging infrastructure in Singapore, such as typical chargers and their technical profiles, charging standards, charger operation modes, and charger coverage. Secondly, we focus on the EV development roadmap and relevant policies in Singapore. We in-depth analyze the government EV roadmap for 2050, EV promotion schemes, government subsidy policy for EV adoption, and additional incentives for private EV operators such as taxi and bus companies, and private hire car companies (e.g., BlueSG and Grab in Singapore). Thirdly, we examine the EV charging infrastructure planning and policy orientation for Singapore 2030, including but not limited to the government goals and roadmap of EV charging infrastructure planning, private expansion plan for EV charging facilities, EV charging profiles and possible standards to be adopted in 2030, EV charging facilities subsidies and subsidy criteria, and representative charging facility company and its investment. Fourthly, we concentrate on the possible beneficial schemes of investment, operations & management (IOM) of EV charging infrastructure in Singapore. We first identify potential stakeholders involved in the EV charging infrastructure IOM process and evaluate their roles, relationships, and collaboration possibility. Next, we study several EV charging infrastructure IOM mechanisms, such as private-operator regime, government-operator regime, and private-public-partnership (PPP) regime. In the last section, we shed light on the challenges, opportunities, and possible solutions for road to vehicle electrification in Singapore.
